The Pacifist States of The United Expanse is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by President Duong Van Nguyen with a fair hand, and notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 15.446 billion Expanseans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of National City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient United Expansean economy, worth a remarkable 4,129 trillion United Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 267,331 United Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, traumatised refugees have a full bedpan shoved into their hands along with their immigration papers, the nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, and businesses are abandoning the city centre because of the lack of transport connections. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The United Expanse's national animal is the White Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Buddhism.

The United Expanse is ranked 208,165th in the world and 8,345th in the South Pacific for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -22.07 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
